Electric Dreams

A dream. It’s what fuels us to continuously live. I think, it would be the saddest thing if a person doesn’t dream at all. I created this blog because I knew this would be my gateway to fashion. When things didn’t go well as I had expected, I sank into depression and stopped blogging for a while. But then Chad encouraged me to keep on going, he knows how much I love fashion and that I would keep on doing it–blogging and sharing ideas–anyway. And he was right. When we dream, and we’re passionate about that dream, nothing can stop us from reaching it. This blog has been around for three years, and I don’t see any sign of stopping.

I guess some people noticed us, and how much work we put in our craft, that Ateneo de Naga University, our alma mater, invited us to talk about what we do on February 28’s Alternative Class Program. I talked about blogging, while Chad shared about photography. The experience was overwhelming and humbling at the same time. We’re quite aware we’re Β not popular, but we do know we’re passionate about what we do, and that alone, I believe, makes us worthy of being speakers.

While a few students did not get the purpose of sending unpopular people to speak to them (which saddens me a bit quite honestly), a handful in my class told me how inspired they were upon hearing my lecture and personal struggles. What I appreciated most were their sincere questions, because that could have meant they related to me. And therefore my purpose was accomplished.

After my talk, we took pictures of Jamie and Danica, who have been both very helpful to me. Jamie Lou Borile is a quirky girl who currently administers the Bicol Fashion Bloggers group. She accepted my application to join the group late last year upon finding out that Bicol has finally began to form fashion-loving circles. Danica Salazar, on the other hand, was the topic head assigned to me. She was very kind and was very attentive to my needs; without her and her partner Alecxa, I wouldn’t have survived the day. I can totally see a bit of myself in Danica, as she was very enthusiastic and interested in learning more Β about blogging. πŸ™‚

Prior to the big day, Chad and I decided to visit the places we used to hang out in. We finally got to eat Cha Cely’s kinalas in Barlin after so many years. We visited Plaza Quince Martires, Chad’s place of solace when he was young. I like going to places Chad spent time in and having my photo taken there. We’ve been apart for way too long, I want to remember him in every way possible.

I forgot to bring a lot of my stuff with me so I had to borrow some of my sister’s things. This dress was a gift from me (lol) last year after winning Nivea’s Face Affair. This bag is hers as well. Now I miss my sister.

Here’s a video Chad made about three years ago, which uses Lali Puna’s version of Phil Oakey’s Together in Electric Dreams–which also happened to be Ateneo de Naga University’s Alternative Class Program theme this semester. The sky and stars are a few of our favorite things, they remind us of our dreams and the infinite possibilities of life. I hope you’ll like it!

P.S. Thanks to Roe Ondis and the rest of the AdNU Supreme Student Government for having us! πŸ™‚

  • Gozika

    Hey there! Looking gorgeous as always. You’re text was quite encouraging and inspirational. Sometimes I feel like I don’t have the time or energy to blog. I feel like all the energy I had in the beginning has disappeared. Used to post daily and had a lot to say but don’t know what happened…work, school πŸ˜€ Not a good excuse. It’s a lot of work though and sometimes feels like it’s all insignificant and slow but I hope that this will yield some results some day πŸ™‚

    • I totally feel you, Gozika! I used to blog everyday as well, but work and other commitments get in the way. I think that’s okay as long as we post quality ones everytime we get a chance to blog. πŸ™‚

    Daphne, Daphne dont stop blogging! your blog is one of the most inspiring blog that i read top to bottom. it has real content and sensible enough worth investing time and attention.
    Funny coz last night me & my husband went to a pizzeria for dinner and in there they played black & white very old Italian movies in a projector on a big screen. two babies sitting right by the screen have a balloon each and the shadow of their balloons reflects the movie screened. the balloon kept moving and its reflection just reminded me of your blog and how nice it is to just keep staring at the balloons and kept me entertained the whole dinner time and i just kept smiling to myself.
    btw your outfit doesnt look like you havent prepared for it πŸ™‚
    have a lovely week!
    hugs

    • Your words made me a bit teary-eyed, Anmari. Thank you so much. You’re one of the few bloggers who actually take time to read the texts in my blog and I appreciate that a lot. I will never give up blogging, I’m sure of that now. I used to have a very shallow reason for blogging, but I have come to love it. I will never abandon it. πŸ™‚
